Questions about an Online Mortgage Loan

Online Mortgage LoanWe received a question about online mortgage loans from a reader about whether they should apply for pre-approval of a mortgage or if they should place an offer first on a home that they wish to buy. We  will answer his questions in our next post about an Online Mortgage Loan. In addition we will discuss why sometimes it is a good idea to apply in advance for a pre-approved mortgage. We can tell you right now that being pre-approved for a mortgage gives you a lot more confidence when you place an offer on a home. You already now that you can afford it and you can place a no condition offer on the table which is very attractive to many sellers.

Online Mortgage Loan

Question to Debt Counselor:: We are planning to purchase a home in the next year or so and have started looking at homes to get an idea of the prices, the areas we would like to live in and to see what is available on the market. We have not made any decisions at this time, but we do have a question. Should we apply for a mortgage before placing an offer on a home or should we wait until we have found something we like and then apply for a mortgage based on the price of the home we would like to make an offer on? We thought that maybe an online mortgage loan service might be able to help us.

We both have excellent steady jobs. We have not started a family yet, although plan to do so in the next couple of years once we get settled into a new home. My spouse and I currently rent an apartment which we like. But feel we should make the move to a regular home. We have no debts other than the car loan and we are trying to save money for a down payment on a home. We have also started saving for retirement. Although it is a long way off. We really try not to use credit cards and if we do, we pay it off right away so we do not have to pay interest.
